K1

The youngest of our older students, the K1 group represent the beginning of the Mother Goose® educational program. Having adopted the Jolly Phonics learning program, and introducing it briefly in the Toddler group, the K1s are equipped with the knowledge and understanding of the dynamics behind reading and writing, and are eager to start absorbing the skills.

Operating under the Play and Learn philosophy, which is a Mother Goose® trademark concept, the children develop a deeper enthusiasm for learning as they relate the educational process with the enjoyment of everyday social interactions. Some of the focuses within this group are expanding their level of pencil control focusing on developing the age-appropriate static tripod posture, being able to freely express themselves through artistic projects and expression, socialize and participate in large or small group activities, and understand empathy for and awareness of the world around them.
